First born in 2008, blockchain’s claim to fame comes from its role as the underpinning technology for Bitcoin, but it has evolved to be used for much more than cryptocurrencies. While it is many things, it is a decentralized, independently verifiable, and immutable ledger at its core. When transactions are recorded on the ledger, every member of the network is updated. The decentralized nature of this ledger ensures that these transactions and the information they carry are tamper-proof. Thanks to blockchain’s use of merkle trees, it is very easy for the network to verify the validity of each transaction. There are over 22 million software developers in the world writing more than 600 billion lines of code each year. The amount of developers is growing over 20% year over year. A single modern sports car has the same amount of code as two Facebook’s. Developers and their code shape the world we live in. Source Code Management underpins the world software development apparatus. Git is the most popular and widely used version control technology today. What if those two worlds collided? Could you take the amazing innovations of the blockchain technology and apply them to the Git world to create a decentralized infrastructure for global developers with full autonomy, no single point of failure and immutable security and record keeping?
